9:20 am
grow farther apart people in his generation feel less invested in the idea of or unification their priorities are landing jobs in a competitive economy where youth employment is just shy of ten percent in my primary school we had lots of talks with north korea and we were educated we all do you mean if taishan in those korean lifestyle and then when i. became one with the school student. there were lots of major provocations from north korea in high school we were exposed to those korean military provocations more dan. the talks with north korea well tell me what you learned about north korea growing up my parents were very sympathetic to north korea and they thought they were very small national police think then my peers so when i
9:21 am
found my peers my friends or. thinking they're going to make it to me about north korea i think myspace is something also pricing to know. would you say that that chasm in terms of attitude still exists today of course when you look at the survey when you contrast between the opinion on the part of north korea and police in twenty's as opposed to those in thirty's and forty's you find that lots of young people are more conservative conservative than. old scene stories and forty's because we had more experience with those korean provocations than talks in dialogues in north korea and i think it still has became packed in the perspectives would you say that at times you felt afraid for your
9:22 am
loved ones your friends or the country the south koreans were so used to meter strength of north korea that they don't feel insecure about their security situations when north korea launches. japanese people feel more insecure about their security than the south koreans so do you think that north korea would ever attack south korea they might attack in small scale sort of in the entire war did you have drills in school about what to do in the case of an attack if there was an attack here on your campus is there a plan in place for what student should do i was never noticed that happened in my parents' age so my father to. think my grandpa did it to what do you think reunification would look like although some people in my age are opposed to the idea of the unification i think. it's also korean society have consensus
9:23 am
about the unification is in the constitution to. the peaceful reunification must be preceded by south korean government. there are some radical people who think. military unification is an option but majority of people think the peaceful unification is the only option for the prosperity of south korea north korea should the new could nuclearize in order to. pursue more cooperation with south korea so how do you feel about president moon it's clear he's interested in a policy of engagement with north korea. he's poli sci it's the only option we have both making more engagement with north korea what do you think of north korea where most of the military i was been taught that those
9:24 am
korean people are not the enemy. the enemy is sort of those korean regime and those korean military. i think there's something important to know that i did research service for twenty one months and this compulsory for all of those men in there when you go to the military you get too exposed to the view north korea is your enemy. this very different from society where you can have different views about those in the square in the gym you said it that the north korean regime is the enemy not the north korean people why do you think that that distinction is important i think that distinction is important because the north korean people or part could be part of korean families which is true for my grandpa grandfather my grandpa has moved from north korea to
9:25 am
solve korea because he personally opposed to the communism and he's for a lot of war fighting against those korean regime in north korea our grandparents generations. lots of family there are those korean people do you think as time goes on in those ties get farther and farther away it will really shift attitudes about north korea and north koreans it has been seventeen years since i have been separated. i don't have any personal ties with those korean people. so i think that will definitely impact the south korean view of most people in those career so. is the son of a north korean refugees his father founded the tonglen newspaper to serve separated from their loved ones in north korea now sean is this. he says witnessing his
